Julie & Julia giveaway

So sometimes, just when you are whining and complaining about your stupid job cutting into your book buying time, you get lucky and win a book from Pickles on Pizza (she's having another giveaway, go enter!), and it makes the whole day better. Especially since it was Julie & Julia, which I've wanted to read since I saw the movie trailer - because the book is always better than the movie, and the movie looks pretty good.

The book arrived yesterday, and since I was working in the quiet, air conditioned peace of the bookstore, with hardly any customers, I read almost uninterrupted and I finished it this afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and desperately want to cook something - maybe those garlic mashed potatoes with garlic cream sauce. There is no such thing as too much garlic.

Now comes the hard part, because this is absolutely a book I'll read again, but I'm bound by the laws of the blog book giveaway to pass it on. Leave a comment below and I'll draw a winner on Monday, and send it on to the next lucky blogger.

Wow!!! You are really fast! Was there sand in it?

No sand :) Just tantalizing recipes. But all that butter, oh my god! Thanks again for the book, it was great fun!

Ooh, ooh, I want it, haha! I'd love to read it before I see the movie.

I know! It actually helped me stick to my diet while on vacation...I felt full after each meal (they ate)...and the aspic and brains made me not really want French food at all.

I'll link your blog back to mine because I know a few people really wanted to read that book.

Thanks Angela! I know, some of the recipes made me cringe, especially the lobsters.
